    No, but children do not always need a father figure. It helps if they have some sort of male figure to look up to- male teacher, etc. And of course a father would be beneficial in general, but it's not 100% necessary to have in order for a child to live a happy, fulfilling life.
    Lol if you have a son and he doesnt have a father figure good luck on trying not to raise a beta loser

    Of course they can! I know someone who doesn't have a Father, and their Mother works and shizz and does everything! She's like Mum and Dad at the same time!
    Just because they have to fill both roles doesn't mean a woman is a suitable father figure.

    Women are generally bad at being role models and disciplining young men/boys.

    Actually I just remember why on a deeper level no sex can really be suitable fill-in for the other sex

    I remember reading something about Freudian psycho-sexual development in young children about how kids in part develop their sexuality and sexual values through their interaction with the parent of the opposite sex (naturally because say as a girl your father is the first and foremost male in your life).

    When that parent is absent you often end up with the person deviating sexually, e g. the archetype of the woman who sleeps with lots of men to try and fill the craving for male attention and acceptance she didn't get from her absent father when she was younger

    Says the person that needs a textbook source, when I am spouting facts that could be understood by the most simpleminded of people.
    No, it is your (unsubstantiated) opinion, were it to be a fact you would have no trouble in providing a source for it.

    I have come to a conclusion that you're not a male
    Not like you to come to the wrong conclusions!

    so therefore you're struggling to take in the information that has been presented in this thread.
    Reported for being sexist.

    How is that sexist?
    You took a stab at me first, for asking a simple question.
    Therefore I am not sexist, you lack the ability to counter and take in my points, so you ignore and point fingers.
    I mean if you cannot handle the heat, stay out the kitchen my dear.

    You implied that an inability to comprehend arguments was linked to my sex. Ergo sexist.

    Again incorrect and irrational of you to come up with utter nonsense.
    Let me correct you in with simple statement.
    Fact is most men and woman would agree with me, as a mother and a father do both instinctively know in which role to play with the child.

    Personally I think the idea of a "father figure" and the "role of a man" is inherently sexist. Some people get taught self defense by mothers and cooking by fathers. bad parents are bad parents, whether they are same sex, single or a heterosexual couple.

    It may be possible in exceptional cases, but I think the vast majority of women couldn't do it. Men and women by nature tend to have very different perspectives in life, and I think a child would benefit most from having access to advice and guidance from both.
